Fruitscape™ with Chestnut Trees

Indulge in the beauty of Fruitscape™ with our majestic Chestnut Trees. These towering trees not only offer a striking presence in your landscape but also provide a bountiful harvest of delicious, nutritious nuts.

Chestnut Trees are renowned for their ornamental value, boasting a broad canopy of glossy green leaves that provide shade and create a serene atmosphere in your garden. As the seasons change, the leaves transform into a warm, golden hue, creating a captivating fall display.

Beyond their aesthetic appeal, Chestnut Trees offer a delectable reward. The tree produces an abundance of chestnuts encased in spiky burrs, ready to be harvested and enjoyed. Roasted, boiled, or used in various culinary creations, the sweet and nutty flavor of chestnuts adds depth and richness to your favorite dishes.

Thriving in full sun to partial shade, Chestnut Trees prefer well-drained soil with a slightly acidic to neutral pH level (pH 4.5-6.5). This pH range provides optimal conditions for their growth and nutrient uptake. They are hardy trees that can withstand various weather conditions and are relatively low-maintenance, making them an excellent choice for both experienced and novice gardeners.

Chestnut Trees are not only a source of edible nuts but also provide valuable timber and wildlife habitat. Their presence attracts a variety of birds and other wildlife, enriching your garden ecosystem.

Embark on a Fruitscape™ adventure with Chestnut Trees, and enjoy the beauty, shade, and delicious harvest they offer. With their timeless appeal and rewarding nature, Chestnut Trees are sure to become a cherished addition to your landscape and a source of culinary delight.

Shipping Information

Before Your Plants Arrive: You can find many guides on unpacking, planting, & care, on our growing guides page.

The Journey From Our Nursery to Your Door:  We NEVER ship our plants bare root. Your plant will travel in the very container in which it was nurtured. We thoroughly prune and water them before packing, and make sure they’re well wrapped to retain moisture during transit. It’s as though you’ve personally collected them from our nursery!

Choose Your Ship Date: We understand you’ll want to be available when your plant arrives. Our checkout process features a handy calendar that allows you to choose the Monday on which you want your plant to ship. Depending on your location, you’ll likely receive your plant by Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday of that week. Once shipped, UPS will generate a tracking number and send it to the email you provided. You can then follow your plant’s journey and ensure someone is available to unpack it on arrival day.
